Review: LG G Flex

 

LG hat Eier. Anders als Samsung , deren gebogenes Smartphone, das Galaxy Round , wohl nie außerhalb des sicheren Heimathafens Südkorea auf den Markt kommen wird, startet der Inlandsmitbewerber auch im Ausland voll durch. Das LG G Flex ist seit kurzem...

LG G Flex review: Ahead of the curve

 

With so many flagship "plus ones" out there, it's refreshing to see something truly revolutionary. The LG G Flex is curved like a Beckham free kick and has a flexible screen and battery, along with a unique self-healing coating on the back.

Unique curved design ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support; CDMA and 1xEV-DO ; Quad-band 3G with HSPA; Penta-band LTE Cat. 4 ; 6" 16M-color 720p curved POLED capacitive touchscreen; Gorilla Glass 2 ; Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean; LG Optimus UI ; Quad-core...

Screen has low ppi, issues ; Rather large device even for a phablet ; No optical image stabilization for the camera ; The hardware controls at the back take some time getting used to ; No microSD slot ; Non-replaceable battery

LG G Flex review: a promising phone, but not one you should buy right now

 

The G Flex has lots of unique features that make it fun to use, but we can't recommend a curved phone until the price drops.

Phenomenal battery life ; Top-notch performance ; Flexible screen adds to the phone's durability

Very expensive ; Camera lacks optical image stabilization ; Self-healing finish needs work

The LG G Flex is a good phone, but there is no way in h-e-double-hockey sticks that we'd recommend that you go out and purchase a handset that costs more than $900 unless it also gives massages and does the dishes. (We're still holding out hope that...

LG G Flex (Sprint)

 

The LG G Flex shows off the potential of curved display technology, but it's the fast performance and top-notch multitasking prowess that make this loaded phablet more than just a tech demo.

Expansive curved display. Top-of-the-line performance. Sharp 13-megapixel camera. Excellent split screen and floating window multitasking.

Awkward rear-mounted buttons. Display is not full HD. Two iterations behind the latest Android version.

Conclusions The curved screen and physical flexibility are the marquee features here, but I'm more impressed with the LG G Flex's power and multitasking chops. That, coupled with the engrossing display, make it a better choice than the HTC One Max or...

LG G Flex review

 

What if screens didn't have to be flat? It's a question designers and engineers have been asking for years as they imagined tablets you could roll up like a newspaper, or mocked-up smartwatches...

Curved display ; Great battery life ; Excellent performance

Ugly, overwrought Android skin ; Bland design ; Nothing takes advantage of the curves

LG proved it can make a curved phone — now it has to prove I should buy one

LG G Flex review

 

Editors' note, March 19, 2014: This review has been updated with analysis of the G Flex's data performance on Sprint. It was previously updated on January 31, 2014, to include call performance and software features on US carriers, as well as data...

The LG G Flex 's contoured display renders media watching more immersive, it features a scratch-resistant coating, and its sizable battery provides an adequate amount of juice.

The G Flex's massive size can be unwieldy, its camera quality is mediocre, and its 720p display can't outpace its competitors.

Despite a novel construction and scuff-proof exterior, the LG G Flex's doesn't flex enough muscle against the Samsung Galaxy Round or the Note 3.

Blind Curve

 

Here is a curious phone. It's a large phone, and at first glance, it bears great resemblance to many such large phones that have come before it. But in an attempt to differentiate itself, this one is equipped with a curved screen . Its arc runs...

Good heavens, it’s curved! 3500mAh battery lasts a really long time. A dual-window feature lets you run two apps side-by-side on that massive screen — drag and drop photos into text messages, for example. Well spec’d: Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM,...

It’s obscenely huge. Please put it away before you frighten the children. The display isn’t great: the screen is grainy with noticeable ghosting. Performance lags more than it should. The flash is terrible. Supposedly scratch-resistant plastic back is...

LG G Flex AT&T Review

 

With the AT&T version of the LG G Flex, we're getting another look at what it means to work with what this manufacturer calls the world's first curved, flexible display. While we did get a rather healthy look with our LG G Flex Review back in December,...

While we’re not entirely convinced this device really needs a curve, the rest of the device is fine enough to be worth the cash it costs. We’d certainly rather have a 1080p display as long as we’re working with 6-inches of screen, but as it is with all...
